Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry. 

The Lowdown is compiled by DN Journal Editor & Publisher Ron Jackson.

Summer's Here and the Time is Right for Domainers at the Meets (Apologies to Martha Reeves & The Vandellas)

This year's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference on Fort Lauderdale Beach is still three months away but domainers in some parts of the U.S. will get a chance to do some socializing before then  in local meet ups that will be held in July and August. Full details aren't out yet, but organizers in South Florida and Denver have both announced meet up dates in posts on Facebook.

Stu Maloff of the South Florida Domainers Group said their next function will be on Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6pm to 9pm at the Oceans 234 restaurant in Deerfield Beach. South Florida is a hotbed of domaining activity and many of the top industry players who reside there take part in this group, making it one of the most active and rewarding ones in the U.S. 

Maloff said an email would be going out to those on the group's mailing list soon with full details on this month's event. 

Next month a Rocky Mountain Summer Meetup will be hosted in Denver, Colorado by Michael Law who staged the February 2011 Rocky Mountain Domain Conference in the Mile High City. With the help of Mike Awada, Law is going to a different format this year with a pair of meet ups planned 

rather than a single conference. The first of those is scheduled for 7pm on Thursday, August 23 at a downtown Denver location to be announced soon. 

The meet up will give Denver area domain name investors, entrepreneurs and web developers (and those who want to come in from out of town) a chance to network in an informal atmosphere. Law and Awada set up a Facebook page for the event where you can get additional meet up information as it becomes available.

One other note today - in case you missed it, we just published a new Cover Story over the weekend - an in-depth profile of Scotland's veteran domain investor/developer Tommy Butler who runs Glasgow.com and dozens of other well-developed sites. Tommy has a great entrepreneurial success story and I think you will be inspired by how far he has come since his first job making 50 cents a day gutting chickens in a Glasgow poultry market! 

Butler advanced through many other enterprises after that and is now one of the leading new media moguls in the geodomain world. You can read his story here: Great Scot! How Tommy Butler Went From Gutting Chickens to Developing Glasgow.com and Dozens of Other Successful Sites.
